Review: Parrots Don't Live in the City
On this week’s Maji Muku Children’s book review we spoke with children’s book author Lucy Reynolds who presented her book “Parrots Don’t Live in the City.”
This is a book for children aged 2 to 6 and is filled with bright coloured illustrations that I think most children will find stimulating.
One of the things I liked most was that the book is written in a melodious rhyming style that I think would be fetching to the ears of most children. Lucy, who holds a PhD in poetry explained that she believes that rhyming, is a way of teaching children to read more easily and therefore made the choice to present the story in this way.
Even though the book is being self-published at this stage, Lucy is experiencing a “selling bonanza” in that she is selling in many children’s bookshops as well as on Amazon and her own website.
I think this book will be a great success and that children will like having it read to them as much as parents will enjoy reading it.
